Power Armour

Postby GeniusCodeMonkey » Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:26 am

PP, Tharkold and Cyberpapacy can all support power armour, but what would the stats be for progression of the said armour? What options should they have?

Tech: 24
Armour: +3
Str: +1
Max dex: 8
Encumberance boost: x1.5
Notes:
Automeds (first aid is favoured)
Infrared: +4 against lighting penalties
HUD. ??? What bonus ???
Auto drug injectors?

Tech: 25
Armour: +4
Str: +2
Max dex: 8
Enc.: x2.0
Notes:
As above.
Energy claws Str+3/AP2
Energy weapons?

Tech: 26
Armour: +4
Str: +2
Dex: +1
Max Dex: 10
Enc. ×2.0
Notes:
As above. Cyber integration, removing bulk for HUD, IR etc. ???

Any ideas?

In Tharkold it wouldnt exist for a couple of reasons. First Tharkoldu would see wearing it as a sign of weakness. They would also never view humans as worth the cost. If they die they just replace them. And the Race rebels wouldnt have the resources.

I don't agree. I think they would have power armour, but would be it would be all custom built and not mass produced; hard to build, hard to fix. It would be a thing of legend, something the Tharkold would hunt down. It would only be used on missions were the mission wouldn't succeed without it; and would be shipped out of area ASAP. With the influx of tech items from CE to Tharkold, more would be built potentially being a factor in the upheavals happening in the Tharkold home cosm.

But what if it was powered on constant agony? What if the moment it went on, you were filled with pain and it never stopped until removed? Then only the strongest could wear it.

Ohhhhhh, I think that is a debatable topic. ;)

I do agree that the Tharkoldu wouldn't have any incentive to use it. But the Race sure would.

I could pretty much guarantee pain would be involved.

A power suit that is powered by the wearer's constant agony is a cool idea. Very Tharkold.

I've been looking for a good adventure hook for Tharkold...
